Bouncy Ball Fun

I think I might actually be getting motivated to "do" Christmas.  Decorations are in full swing.  Christmas photo cards ordered and Christmas letter in rough draft mode.  Santa shopping today (shhhhh!).  


And I actually turned on Holiday music yesterday!?!??!
I cannot confirm nor deny that I may have been jamming to Bruce Springsteen's "Santa Claus is Coming To Town" full blast in the car?



And since I am shopping today....


I wanted to share this fun craft kit that the boys absolutely love.  

If you are like me, I am always looking for crafts for them to do that keep them interested in a short period of time.

Make your own Bouncy balls anyone?!?!?


The apparatus goes together in a snap.  The kit comes with several colors including green, blue, yellow, white, orange, pink, and purple and comes with two molds.

You simply snap the mold to the "arm".


 And fill the mold with one or more colors.

Bunny was tickled that I captured the powder going through the tube!

When it is filled...you simply swing the "arm" and dunk the mold in the water container for 2 minutes.



The waiting is the hardest part.



Unless you have some entertainment brought to you by Button.


Because when you take it out of the water....you have to wait another few minutes for the ball to dry in the mold.




But the wait is so worth it to see this in the end.




The smile...not the bouncy ball that creates havoc in my house!

But in all seriousness, I bought this kit awhile ago for a birthday party and it kept seven boys VERY entertained. 
And they had a really neat party "favor" to take home made exclusively by them!


And we still take it out for those times when the boys are bored (like the other night) and want to do something fun in my Studio!
